Prepare your environment for this section:
In the Getting started lab, we deployed our sample application to EKS and saw the running Pods. But where are these Pods running?
We can inspect the default managed node group that was pre-provisioned for you:
There are several attributes of managed node groups that we can see from this output:
- Configuration of minimum, maximum and desired counts of the number of nodes in this group
- The instance type for this node group is
- Uses the
AL2_x86_64EKS AMI type
We can also inspect the nodes and the placement in the availability zones.
You should see:
- Nodes are distributed over multiple subnets in various availability zones, providing high availability
Over the course of this module we'll make changes to this node group to demonstrate the basic capabilities of MNGs.
